New to the list

Hello, my name is Thom and I am a studioholic....

Oops, wrong list.

I am considering improving my basement to provide a multiuse
environment. I see the space used as a home theater, music practice
area, jam area and occasional recording area. Does anyone have any
suggestion on what sort of STC I am going to be happy with?

Other factors:

recent frame single family residential construction
Some walls in area are sub-grade poured in place concrete
about 750 sq. ft. to be included - approx. 20 x 35 x10
currently bare concrete and studs

Family of four (the children represent noise sources inside the room,
not outside)
Musical styles are generally not loud
Budget is adequate, but I'd rather spend the money other ways

I have read Accoustics 101, but I don't know how much is enough.

Are you trying to control room acoustics, or noise separation from the
balance of the home, or both?
